First meeting of the "Smart Cities and Smart Citizens" UCJC Research Group, on April 14th, 2016

On Thursday, April 14th, at 13:30 pm we held the first meeting of the the "Smart Cities and Smart Citizens" UCJC Research Group at the chalet in UCJC Villafranca Campus.

On this occasion, we covered the following topics

First of all, firms, organizations and institutions that are working together with us at the university to disseminate applied research on smart citizens and smart cities in world societies, and in particular, in cities.

Secondly, we shared information on the congress we are planning to attend on smart cities in Torino (Italy), making shared contributions in different working groups in september 2016 (attention to deadline, April 29th!, extended perhaps?). Perhaps a great occasion to meet and work together with our international partners? 

Topics for the possible working groups deciding to go to Torino and contributing may cover the following
1.SHARING RESPONSIBILITIES, 2.(E-QUAL)ITY LIVING. 3. ENVIRONMENT AND LAND USE, 4. TRANSITION AND INNOVATION THEORIES, 5. MAINTENANCE, UPGRADING AND INNOVATION IN CULTURAL HERITAGE, 6. NEW ECONOMIES, 7. BIG DATA AND DATA MINING, and 8. ICT & MODELS: PLANNING FOR COMMUNITIES.



We also covered information on a shared repository of sources on smart cities and smart citizens, built up for the member of this ecosystem (for people, businesses, and institutions interested).





Smart Cities Smart Government Research Practice World Consortium

Finally we also shared information on UCJC joining the Smart Cities Smart Government Research Practice Consortium at the Center for Technology in Government of the State University of New York at Albany.
